A little of this, a little of that . . .

So today I have a few things . .

First, I'd like to mention one of the sellers I featured last week . . . again. CharteChic crocheted a couple more wonderful items (perfect for Valentine's Day!) with my yarns. The first is from "Chocolate Cherry Valentine" . . . a super soft skein of superwash merino wool . . . here is what she created with it:

Make sure to click through to the listing to see all of the cool ways it can be worn!
Then, there is "My Punk Love" convertable cowl - my "Punk Rock Valentine" yarn is just one of the great yarns used in this creation:
So, if you are looking for something to keep you warm this Valentine's Day make sure to check out CharteChic on etsy!

Second, I was featured on Stella's "Laundry" blog! You can check it out HERE. Oh, and while you're there, check out all of the great shops and items she has featured. I especially like the LEGO SOAP! :)

Third . . . I've got more new yarns! I have been trying to keep up as it really has been an amazing month (THANK YOU to all of my wonderful customers!) but I feel like I am starting to slow down a bit . . . it doesn't help that I'm getting sick (again! I spent most of December sick! blah!) and that I received a whole bunch of Gedifra Poesie yarn yesterday . . . that all has to be knit up into shawls for spring and summer shows!?! I need more time! But, I am going to cut back on my shows just a little so I have time to spin more and get this knitting done . . .

BUT, anyways . . . here are the new yarns!

A new Hello Kitty Grrlz yarn! This one is bright and cheerful, in pinks, yellows, and oranges. It also has a coordinating skein without the Hello Kitty face beads. Both skeins are 82 yards. Here is "Hello Sunrise Kitty"

And, the coordinating skein, "Sunrise"
Then, there is the second skein of "Plum Copper Surprise" . . . the first skein has sold, and it had a lot more coiling and beehives in it, but this skein is similar - spun from merino wool with lots of novelty yarns and plied with metallic copper thread - 110 yards:
I also have two new single ply yarns. Both are spun from merino wool hand dyed by the Yarn Wench. And, both match Navajo 3-plys I also have available.

Sunset Canyon

Felicity's Garden

Oh! I've got two more - both "Valentine" yarns, both spun from the same fiber from TerraBellaSpun. One is plied with OnLine Linie SMASH yarn and the other has Joanns Sensations Peacock yarn spun in and then plied with thread.

Drusilla's Valentine
Willow's Valentine

Coming soon . . . Cordelia's WISH yarn!

Well, I think that is it! Time to get to work!

Happy Tuesday! :)

Your yarn makes me wish I actually had time to knit or crochet. It's just beautiful.

I love that you feature people who use your yarns. Great idea!

thank you!

and, since i just haven't had as much time to knit with my own yarn, i love seeing it knit or crocheted up by others! so, of course, i want everyone else to see it, too! ;)
